The original was very atmospheric and I thought that there was a bit of ambiguity in there - surely somebody that old could not remain so 'innocent' - so was she really looking for friendship or is she just very good at manipulating somebody impressionable (and the audience) into believing that she is still a child and into wanting to become her next guardian? I'm not sure I'll rush to see the re-make but I'll give it a go when its available to rent.
I think the truth might be somewhere inbetween. This sounds like more than the usual Hollywood butchery of a classic, but also sounds a bit too much like the same film without subtitles, which makes me think, what's the point?

I'd be interested to see if they retain one particular element from the original
